RENEGOTIATE YOUR POSITION.

Pictures of  TrainQuaters launch flooded my timeline on IG and  whatsapp status sometime lastweek and I wondered how I missed such a great networking opportunity.
.
Apparently, I goofed on my mail lastweek and only did find out about the invite while doing catch up on Sunday night in a bid to clear my desk for the new week. The thing pain me no be small.
.
Errrm! Don’t be like me?
.
That’s one of the places negotiation takes place. Real time negotiation.
.
Are you lost? Let me make you understand.
.
Many of us by virtue of being born in this part of the world where systems don’t work are already at a disadvantage. Add that to lack of education, poverty, failed homes and the many socio-economic crises you can think of, we really don’t have a good shot at success.
.
While all available data might suggest a disadvantage, do we give up, surrender our stake and sit in our corner of the world? Hell No!
.
What you need do is to constantly renegotiate your position.
.
Yeah, constantly demanding better from life and asking to sit at the table of men of influence, power and wealth.
.
No hands down in this game called life, no one will hand you anything on a platter, you’ll have to negotiate and renegotiate if need be.
.
I must warn you though that no one comes to the negotiation table empty handed. You’ve got to have something you wish to negotiate with. You must have something with which you can claim a seat. You must be negotiating from a place of authority not cowardice.
.
A gift, a business idea, money, knowledge, expertise, skill etc. You’ve just got to have something else you’ll be a pun in the game while the big boys decide.
.
The good news is that God or the gods as you may favours all. Everyone has something. Believe it or not, it’s the truth.
.
Your job is to locate that something and find your way to the negotiation table as fast as you can. When you get there, negotiate like your life depends on it ’cause in truth, your life does.
.
Goodluck with that.

Peace, Love and Cold Zobo.

Goodmorning.
